Wolf is a rich, pre-agricultural world with a moderate population over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in size.

  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • This world has high-grade living conditions with a good climate and a non-harmful environment. As such, this world is much sought after with large queues for immigration here.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Paradise Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Kurghan-Wolf System[edit]

The primary is Kurghan, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.352 Sols, a mass of 0.774 Sols, and a diameter of 1.168 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, and (II) a very thin atmosphere radworld. (III) Wolf orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) a dense rocky planetoid belt, (VI) a large gas giant, (VII) a small gas giant, (VIII) a small ice giant, (IX) a vacuum iceworld, and (X) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Wolf[edit]

(III) Wolf is designated the mainworld. It orbits Kurghan at a mean distance of 0.66 AU (98.7 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 222 days 15 hours and a rotation period of 17.5 hours. The axial tilt is 15 degrees. Wolf has a diameter of 8,655 km, a density of 5.72 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.71 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.88 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen, 22% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 43% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 22°C. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite[edit]

Wolf retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Jackal:
